Stoneman Glaciara

The challenge for keen mountain bikers, now also exclusively in the Valais

Stoneman Glaciara


Find the challenge for ambitious mountain bikers exclusively in the Valais. The ultimate mountain bike experience finaly came to Switzerland and we at the Aparthotel Ambassador in Bellwald are happy to be  part of it as partner for accommodation. Enjoy the fascinating landscapes up to 4700 m, along 127 km amongst the glaciers and massive 4000+ m peaks and the gripping fascination of centuries-old mountain villages. Now available for the first time and only with Stoneman Glaciara Wallis - the new mountain bike experience with Roland Stauder.

The Aparthotel Ambassador in Bellwald..
.. is within close proximity to the Stoneman Glaciara route 
.. has a bike wash, a bike garage and a mini workshop
.. is one of the official issuing points for the starter packages

The route has three very different sections going up to the Great Aletsch Glacier, the largest ice flow in the Alps, and back to Mörel. The "Königsanstieg" - "King's Ascent" – follows at up to just under 1600 m, while an old military road rises steeply up to the Breithorn Pass at 2451 m. This is followed by the descent to the "Binntal, the "Binn Valley". The route then continues along the Rhone towards Obergoms – through ancient, mysterious village centres, along historic memorials, and past inviting cafés and restaurants.

There are three versions of the Stoneman Glaciara that follow on from each other and complete your mountain bike tour.
